Travel Inspiration | Edinburgh

     As the city I've called home for the longest, Edinburgh is a special place to me. I think it's a beautiful, fascinating city, with so much to explore - honestly, this post could have been twice as long as it is! The streets have so many stories to tell, and sometimes it's my job to tell them... And considering there's been a settlement here for thousands of years now, those stories are long, rich, and complex, spanning the centuries. Take a look for yourself....

Outfit - Back to the Start

     First outfit post of 2019 is here! And as you might have noticed already, it's not a Disneybound look - I had fun doing them last year, but I was starting to run out of characters to use with the clothes I already owned. So, this year is back to basics, with just outfits I like. Also, as I'm reducing my schedule to twice weekly posts, outfits will come every second week now I think. Anyways, this white and blue dress is one I've had for years and always comes in handy since it's versatile for day to day or slightly more formal wear - I used it for a family Christmas meal the other week! The thick, knitted style is also perfect for winter, and I added the blue cardigan - which zips up to look like a jumper - with its sparkly details for a similarly festive style. The tights are super thick too, and I recently got these leather boots refurbished as they're practical and easy to match with lots of outfits. There's minimal jewellery too, with just these teapot earrings, as I've mostly only worn earrings day to day recently.

A Day in the Life | Freelance Tour Guide

     I realised recently that I've mentioned the fact that I'm working as a tour guide in a few posts, but I've never really written about it properly or anything. It's been a long time since I did my last 'day in the life', back when I was working multiple jobs, so it seemed like a good time to update with my current situation.

2019 | Looking Forward

     Happy New Year, and hello 2019! I hope everyone had a good time, however you chose to celebrate New Year. I've mentioned in previous years, that saying about how you spend your New Year can define how you will spend the rest of the year. I had a quiet night at home, with a couple glasses of wine and some Netflix, then popped out to the nearby park to watch the fireworks over Edinburgh Castle at midnight. If that means I'll have a fairly relaxed year, that would be fine by me! I'd rather not spend it alone though (I like my own company but not all the time!) nor do I necessarily want to cut down on my partying, but we'll have to wait and see! So anyway, what am I hoping to get from 2019 then?
